Chilly Day Warmer – Hot Dates and Ginger Tea
For chilly winter days in Hong Kong (translation – days when I don’t use the AC), I like to add a waft of warmth with hot teas. We’ve recently fell in love with a tea made from syrupy dates, and have been brewing it almost every day at home.
I like to add a few slices of muddled ginger to each cup to add that little extra je ne sais quoi . The spicy notes of the ginger make this drink feel like something you’d get served at the spa, which is always a good thing in my book!
First, muddle a few slices of ginger in a glass to extract all that lovely spicy juices.
Add the syrupy date preserve – I like to use a tablespoon for each glass. I bought the date preserve from Park N’Shop, it’s a Korean brand and you can find it in most supermarkets.
Mix with hot water and enjoy! It tastes good, and is also good for you!
